NIFTY-Serve
———–
Thanks to the work of Hiro and document by Fujita-san, that I now can
exchange mail with NIFTY without problem.

English
——-
So, I fall back in English again. In fact, Junko is writing Japanese
mails to her father everyday, and we are considering of changing it to
make it a little more objective, so that we can distribute it more
widely. In the end, you may end up with receiving 2 letters: English &
Japanese.

Emu Proteus/2
————-
hasn\’t arrived yet. Hopefully, it will arrive by the end of the next week.

MIDI
—-
I would like to take a poll on the format which we should use to convert
MIDI file into ascii so that we can transmit it by mail. There are 2
main options:

1) BinHex 4.0 – vertual standard in Mac. Not sure whether it exists in
UNIX and PC
2) UUENCODE – vertually supported on every platform. Not as stable as
BinHex 4.0 on Mac.

By the way, do you have any access on MIDI over UNIX > Hiro.

Ugougo-Ruga
———–
I was interested on this one. Junko was especially interested on the
\”funky\” arrangements of the children\’s music. She herself is also doing
some arrangements on children\’s music, using EZVision.

Incidentally, I also made an arrangement of \”douyou.\” It is based on
\”Genkotsu-yama no Tanuki-san.\” It can be better described as
\”Genkotsu-yama no Tategoto (La Follia).\”

By the way, when I read \”Konshuu no douyou\” for the first time, I mis-
read it as \”Konshuu no Dohyou\” and thought that it should do something
with Sumo :-P)

Barbar
——
Barbar in London Ontario is a nightmare!

Christmas Tree
————–
As to this topic is concerned, I\’m not sure …

But, London Ontario certainly is in the Christmas season. Christmas
shopping sale is at the peak now. Every shopping mall has Christmas
decorations, and of course, Sanata Claus to take a photo with him!

Gaijin
——
There was a very active thread called \”Who started all these Gaijin
myth?\” in soc.culture.japan news group recently. A parson called Mr.
Masuda started the thread saying \”Why so many people consider gaijin as a
derogatory term?\” Three or four persons (both Japanese and American)
including me went supporting \”Gaijin is not a derogatory term\” and a few
people including a Japanese went supporting \”Gaijin is a derogatory
term.\” I seemed to have flared the argument a bit, then in the end,
shut up the argument. If you have an access to soc.culture.japan, take a
look at it. If you want, I can send you the abstracts, too.

Marx
—-
Well, I said that I will write about Marx on this issue, but I am sort of
run out of time (partly because of the Gaijin thread.) I hope to write it
in the next issue.

Fin

That\’s about it for today.

Oh, yea, your wedding notification just got here today. Both of you look
so clean and nice > Hiro.

Bye then.

Natsu Sakimura
